OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Leckenby is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arsene Wenger with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.086 billion Leckenbyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arjen. The average income tax rate is 52%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leckenby's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.

Leckenby is ranked 1st in Emirates and 110,021st in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -11 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
